💅Review: Possibly the worst thing in beauty for me, no scratch that, in the world for me, is nail polish. For some unknown reason it just totally refuses to stay put. I could use the cheapest brand or the most expensive brands alone or with top coats but honestly absolutely nothing works. I have even gone into salons and yet the results are continuously awful. So as you can most probably imagine my reaction when I heard about Maybelline’s Superstay 3D Gel Effect Plumping Top Coat, I was instantly drawn to it and wanted to try it out.
Being spoiled like I am, I received my Superstay 3D Gel Effect Plumping Top Coat free from Maybelline for an honest review, and an honest review is exactly what they are going to get.
Guess what? It worked! No shitting you. After all this time without being able to wear polish on my nails, I have actually found something that works for me. Over the actual fucking moon I am.
So, there I sat nervously applying the Maybelline Superstay 3D Gel Effect Plumping Top Coat over a nice pale blue polish with nothing but hope in my heart. The application was smooth and even given that the brush was a good size, weighted perfectly and was curved to just glide over your nail instead of slopping it everywhere like you do with a normal brush. Don’t even pretend you don’t do that. Especially when it’s transparent or a French manicure set, it just gets slopped on and goes all over your fingers and sometimes your leg, your arm, the duvet, the sofa.
Ay, don’t you think that when you try your hardest to do it properly you end up with it everywhere? I’m so not a girl it’s unbelievable, no wonder none of mine have ever bloody stayed on haha.
Sorry, back to business. So, It surprisingly dried pretty fast and once it did it gave a fantastic boost to the polish underneath making my shaky-handed attempt actually look pretty decent and like they could have actually been professional, well, semi-professional. They were glossy, smooth, beautiful. Obviously impressed already, I prayed and begged to the Nail Polish Gods to give me a break and allow me and my nails some time together with this beautiful blue shine.
So, I went about me business thinking I was absolutely gorgeous and constantly admiring my beautiful looking talons, well, partly bitten nubs like, but still admiring them non the less then disaster struck! A chip!
Devastated about the chip I actually hadn’t realised that I was actually on day six of the polish. Six days in and got my first chip! Six whole days! That is totally unheard of in my life, the Nail Polish God named Maybelline well and truly heard my prayers and allowed me to have something I can never usually have. I had well and truly been blessed.
Seriously though, I am more than impressed and will most definitely be trying out the Maybelline Superstay Forever Strong Professional Nail Varnish with it next time. Can you imagine how amazing my nails will look then? Polish boner even just thinking about it. I wouldn’t just think I was gorgeous then would I ay? oh no, I would think I was Perrie-Bloody-Edwards 😍
So yeah, a success all round. I would definitely recommend it to you all.
A clear, magical, nail polish dream.
